View Quote Mitch Evers: Ah Maggie, you're so beautiful.
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: [to brush it off] Ah...
Mitch Evers: No I mean it! I know I don't say things like you want to hear, but I've been thinking a lot about you, and us, and the way things used to be... this might sound funny to you but you know what I've missed most of all?
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Mitch?
Mitch Evers: What?
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: You've got stew all over you.
Mitch Evers: I don't care.
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Go and wash it off. [pause] What do you miss?
Mitch Evers: Well, I don't care if it does sound silly; I miss those wet stockings you used to have hanging around the bathroom, and I miss my razor being dull because you used it to shave your legs with. And I miss the hairpins mixed up with the fish hooks in my tackle box... it's no fun having a clothes closet all to myself. And it's no fun swearing because you're not around to make believe you're shocked by it. Well, nothing's any good without you Maggie, I miss a lot of things... I guess I just miss you!
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Why did you take so long to tell me?
Mitch Evers: I don't know... Well because, cause I guess I was hoping that you'd come back sometime. Maggie, I've been the prize chump of the world. We've both been. We're going to grow into a couple of old lonely people if we don't do something about it.
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: I know.
Mitch Evers: You don't want that, do you?
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: No Mitch.
[they kiss]
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Oh Mitch, it's been so long... so very long.
Mitch Evers: Don't cry. Listen, you can slug me in the eye anytime you want.
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Ok!

Susan Evers: No kiddin'? That's my birthday too.
Sharon McKendrick: Isn't that peculiar? November 12th?
Susan Evers: Um huh. Funny, isn't it?
Susan Evers: [Gets up off the bed] Uh oh. This one's full. [Looking around] Hey! What do ya know? It's stopped raining.
Sharon McKendrick: [Both outside sitting on the step] What is your mother like?
Susan Evers: I can't remember her.
Sharon McKendrick: Did she die?
Susan Evers: Nope. Busted up with Dad when I was young. But she was fabulous. Absolutely fabulous!
Sharon McKendrick: How do you know?
Susan Evers: There used to be a picture of her on Daddy's desk. But once he caught me looking at it and it's never been around since. Hey! You wanna come to the commissary and get a popsicle with me?
Sharon McKendrick: Can you only think about your stomach at a time like this?
Susan Evers: At a time like what?
Sharon McKendrick: Don't you feel it? Don't you know what's happening? Don't you find it peculiar that we both look so much alike, and have the same birthday?
Susan Evers: It's just one of those things. Isn't it?
Sharon McKendrick: Will you come inside a minute? Please?

Sharon McKendrick: Pull what off?
Susan Evers: Switch places!
Sharon McKendrick: Switch?
Susan Evers: We can do it. We're twins, aren't we? Oh, I'm want to know Mother! Look, now I'M getting goosebumps!
Sharon McKendrick: Me, too. You know something? There's more to it than just switching places. I believe fate brought us together.
Susan Evers: How so?
Sharon McKendrick: If we switched, sooner or later, they'd have to unswitch us.
Susan Evers: Mother would have to bring me to California to unmix us.
Sharon McKendrick: And they'd have to meet again.
Susan Evers: Face-to-face. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Sharon McKendrick: Exactly.
Susan Evers: Let's go to work!
View Quote Ursala: I know! We'll wait until she comes over here and when she's not looking we'll dump ants down her dress!

View Quote Verbena: You didn't know what a good thing you had when you had it.
Mitch Evers: Huh?
View Quote Vicky Robinson: You're a big girl now, Susan. You're old enough to understand that wonderful, delicate mystery that happens sometimes between a man and a woman.
Sharon McKendrick: I know what wonderful, delicate mystery Daddy sees in you. And I can't say I blame him there, either. You're very nicely put together.
Vicky Robinson: Your father underestimates you, I think.
Sharon McKendrick: I'm sure you won't, will you, Vicky?
Vicky Robinson: Susan, dear, you've had him to yourself all this time, and I can understand that suddenly to have another woman around, well, it's a tremendous intrusion. But all my life, it seemed, I've hoped and waited for someone like him: someone gentle and mature, rough-edged, but quick to laugh, someone understanding and wise. All the things that I've come to love and cherish in him.
Sharon McKendrick: Well, that's very refreshing.
Vicky Robinson: Why, dear?
Sharon McKendrick: Most girls just run after Daddy because he's so wealthy.
Vicky Robinson: [angrily] Are you inferring that I'd marry your father for his money?
Sharon McKendrick: If the shoe fits, wear it!
Vicky Robinson: Look, pet. I've tried to be friendly, but I'm going to marry your father, so you get used to the idea!
Sharon McKendrick: You wanna bet?
Vicky Robinson: Oh, honey, don't you play with the big girls. You'll be in way over your head.
View Quote [Grandmother rattles off the day's schedule at the breakfast table]
Susan Evers: [as Sharon] I don't think I'll be able to do any of those today.
Grandmother: [surprised] What did you say?
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Sharon! You interrupted your grandmother.
Susan Evers: Well I have something important to tell you. [emphatically] Mother, I think what you and Daddy did to us children is lousy! In fact, I think it stinks!
Grandmother: Sharon!
Susan Evers: [approaching Grandmother] And let's get this straight, I'm not Sharon, I'm Susan. [facing her mother] Sharon, your Sharon, is out in California with Daddy.
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: But it's impossible!
Grandmother: You can't be Susan.
Susan Evers: But I AM Susan. Sharon and I met at camp, so we decided to switch places. She bit off her fingernails and I cut her hair, and now she's out in California with Dad, swimming and riding my horse and having a KEEN time and I'm stuck here with these lousy music lessons and I HATE them!
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: [staring as if too good to be true] Susan!
Susan Evers: Oh I'm sorry, Mother. But I wanted to see you, and I missed not having a mother. I love you very much, and I wondered, if you could love me as me and not as Sharon. Please?
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Oh Susan! [she hugs Susan] Oh my darling. Why didn't you let me know? Why didn't you tell me?
Susan Evers: I couldn't help it. I mean, I wanted to be near you and to know what it was like to have a mother and everything.
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Oh, Baby. [they hug again]
Grandmother: [getting up and hugging Susan] Susan, darling! Let me look at you. [to Maggie] She's EXACTLY ...
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: I know, I can't believe it.

Sharon McKendrick: [to Susan] Didn't you tell her? [Susan shakes her head, no]
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Tell me what?
Susan Evers: Well ...
Sharon McKendrick: Dad's getting married.
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Well. When is all this taking place?
Verbena: Saturday, supposedly. [Maggie looks away, anxiously]
Sharon McKendrick: She just sort of infiltrated, Mother. And before you knew it, Dad was hooked.
Verbena: If you ask me, Mr. Evers is slipping into his second childhood.
Margaret 'Maggie' McKendrick: Oh your father is old enough to know what he's doing. Shall we go upstairs and get unpacked? I'm just dying to get into a hot shower after that long plane trip.
